Summary: I needed a landline phone for power outages since my other phones are all cordless. There weren't any landline phones in my local Walmart so the associate suggested I go online. I'm glad I did. I was about to purchase a phone from Pottery Barn for about $20 higher when I found this similiar, if not the same, phone and saved $20 bucks in the process. The sound quality is excellent and the classic look goes well with my bedroom antique furniture.
Summary: Really love my new 'vintage' phone. Love the ring!! What I wish it had though would be a removable dial card so I could type in my phone number modified to read as the old numbers in my area would have using letters and numbers. However, I am impressed by the replica Automatic Electric dial card, just wish it were removable. It looks great sitting on my vintage formica table.
Good sound, great looks. Should be a good back-up if power is lost.

Summary: It was bought as an emergency back-up in case power goes off. Haven't had to test it like that. However, it works well, sound quality is good on both ends. Seems to be solidly constructed and, have received quite a few compliments on its look.. Quite happy with our purchase.
Summary: We bought this phone because of the retro look to it. The style is very cute, of course it isn't as "authentic" looking as an original retro phone, but what do you expect. The receiver is a little heavier/more awkward than I would like it to be, but it isn't overly annoying by any means. The buttons are also not the old fashioned turn-type and it takes a bit of getting used to the placement of the numbers.
Summary: We thought this would be a cute retro phone, it turned out to be a cute piece of trash! Very cheaply made, the buttons on the base were loose and flimsy. From the first use the handset was a staticky mess, it is embarrassing to use!! Overall it is an awful product. Very disappointed.
